Riassunto analitico
The purpose of this study is to evaluate 10 types of power plants available at present including fossil fuel as well as renewable energy-based power plants, with regard to their overall impact on the living standard of local communities. Both positive and negative impacts of power plant operation are considered using the Goal programming method. The choice of this method follows in part the existing international literature and in part the necessities of Italian context.
The current study covers the set of criteria weights considered typical for Italy and for the main developed countries. The results presented here are illustrative only and user-defined weighting is required to make this study valuable for a specific group of users.
